Sensible remarks

MANY thanks to Nick Bingham of Hastings Alliance for his sensible words about the proposed link road. It would tragically damage wildlife, habitats, woodland and farmland; add massively to traffic and emissions, and thereby affect climate change.

The word “regeneration” was formerly used by American hypermarkets for justifying shopping malls which destroyed town centres.

Rather than “regeneration” through “growth” and “business parks”, we should, as Nick Bingham says, “increase our investment in sustainable transport accessible to all.”
